Hemingways is in a much quieter part of Ko Samui. Friendly staff with a good menu selection. Beautiful outlook over the water. Very casual and relaxed.

As a family of 5, we organised a snorkelling trip on one day & then a Thai cooking class on another. Both experiences were awesome. on the snorkelling trip we saw loads of fish, went to a really nice beach, really easy & relaxing & then we came back to a really nice meal at the restaurant. In the cooking class with Jae we selected what we would like to make & with her guidance we made some great food. The kids really loved the day. Jae & her team in the kitchen were so friendly & helpful, it was a pleasure spending a morning with them. A special mention for Tim who provided great advice & assistance & was overall a really good guy. Congratulations on what you have achieved with Hemingway's on the beach. Ian & Lisa

During the week I've spent with my friends in Thailand between Bangkok and Koh Samui the food we had at Hemingway's was by far the best. Freshness, richness of flavors and the special care with the presentation were superb. That would be enough for a 5 star review. In addition to that, the owners were extremely nice and shared several tips with us about where to go to watch the sunset which turned out to be great. And to top if off the view from the restaurant is amazing. I just hope they can keep up the good work after they move to Portugal. Hopefully, Madam Phiphi (Jaa) will get folks specially trained in her skills to take over for her.
